Buckeye Institute-Championed Universal Occupational License Recognition One Step Closer to Becoming Law

Jun 01, 2022

Columbus, OH – Greg R. Lawson, a research fellow at The Buckeye Institute, commented on the House passage of Ohio House Bill 203 and the Senate passage of Ohio Senate Bill 131, which would make Ohio a more attractive state for workers to move to by adopting universal occupational license recognition. 

“By passing Ohio House Bill 203 and Ohio Senate Bill 131—universal occupational license recognition—both chambers of the General Assembly took an important step forward to help Ohio address critical worker shortages brought on by the pandemic. This Buckeye-championed policy will make Ohio a more welcoming state for new residents and ensure new Ohioans can quickly fill vacancies in areas where Ohio is in desperate need of qualified workers.”
